You can find a pre-built procmail at:

Otherwise, you can try my attached build recipe.  Note the following:

    1. You will need BIND installed to build procmail -- search the
       archives for the Cygwin BIND patch.
    2. Building procmail under Cygwin is a little touchy.  Sometimes I
       have to restart the make part to get the build to complete.
    3. You will be prompted during the make part -- this is indicated by
       "# <CR> /usr/sbin/ssmtp".

I use fetchmail to retrieve my mail.  Since fetchmail defaults to using
procmail as its MDA, no extra setup is required.
